From a Management Survey, we can establish and record the presence, possible nature and location of asbestos and include an assessment of its condition.
Samples are not always taken, so the presence of asbestos is considered presumed unless there is strong evidence to the contrary.
All our asbestos surveying work is carried out to HSE Standard HSG 264 surveying and sampling requirements for assessment of asbestos containing materials.
Most surveys are made to comply with the law. This means that every possible effort is made to locate ACMS (asbestos containing materials) present in a building to enable the management responsible to control the risk.
If a survey is deemed necessary, the type of survey and the appropriate report format is established and agreed. One of the key considerations is the obtaining of samples and avoiding, or minimising, operational activities.
With the latter in mind, we offer three types of surveys: Asbestos Management Survey, Refurbishment Survey, Pre Demolition Survey.
